to address gun violence. what he wants to try and his very short timeline for action. >> i love you. >> shot by his best friend. why the victim's first response was "i forgive you." good evening. >> someone shot at a u.s. marine as he was driving a government car down highway 85 in cupertino. kit doe shows us the car peppered with bullet holes. >> reporter: detectives say this is a sensitive and active investigation. and they went through great pains to keep this marine corps officer away from the media. after questioning him for several hours, they whisked him out a sidedoor away from our cameras. this is an active investigation, and whoever opened fire on this marine is still out there. >> reporter: a government-issued pontiac g6 was riddled with bullets. on the font passenger door, one bullet -- on the front passenger door, one bullet travelled through the metal and pierced the other side. the marine was traveling on 85. >> he pulls over and quickly discovers that he's been shot at more than once, multiple times, by someone either who was on the freeway or on the side of the freeway. we h
a year ago and the decisions and the military action that resulted in the death of osama bin laden. >> good evening. tonight i can report to the american people and to the world that the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden, the leader of al qaeda. >> usa, usa! usa! >> the news came out of nowhere. no one in this country was expecting it, just as no one inside the bin laden compound was expecting u.s. navy s.e.a.l.s to arrive by helicopter. one image from that night has come to symbolize the mission. the photograph taken at the height of the raid by veteran white house photographer pete souza. there it is. there you are. >> here i am sitting right here. >> that's an intense look on your face, and everyone is intently watching that screen. >> this is -- if i'm not mistaken, pete, this picture was taken right as atthe helicopter was having problems. that's what it feels like, because i remember hillary putting his hand over her mouth at that point. >> when you look at it, what does it conjure up inside you? >> that's the way i usual look when my husban
no discrimination against any minorities. this is why we do not have any fear that specific actions will be taken against minorities, against christians. we do not forget at the same assad -- if you are the assad regime, but it belongs to the alawites. if you are made specific group within the alawite community, you are investing in the civil war. there is a fear about the future of the alawite community. since many from the community, they played a role killing other syrians for money, for support from the security forces. but we are committed to the syrians for all. we are proposing within the opposition a program called a transitional justice that can assure all the minorities to be a part from syria -- in 1956 the prime minister, the majority of the christians. a minority of the minority. even that as he became prime minister for two terms. the muslims have 4 seats in parliament and this supported his positions. in syria we did not have a history of civil war. many changes in the social fabric. i think the nature of the syrian society as a conciliation between still exists. this is a great as
. it is important that we are for if other actions failed to occur. these are permanent changes. in the opening letter they say the men met was permanently extending all the tax provisions that are important for small businesses. we think it is important, even though you extended the policies for two years, that is still temporary and is not really provide the long-term planning we need to have going forward. that is why i think it is important. >> i don't want secretary geithner to go without some comment, because i don't think that is an accurate description of what he said. >> that is what he said. >> you have to look at the whole statement of his, and to use that as an excuse for this bill -- by the way, at 97% of small businesses have in come under $250,000. so to use that once again as the rationale is i think ignorant of the fact. let me just say a word about the provisions on earned income tax and the child tax credits. you can play around with language, whether it is a tax or spending, but the truth of the matter is that the bill that was filed last night would raise taxes on 25 millio
called real action right now to reduce gun violence after the school massacre in newtown, connecticut. he put vice president biden in charge of a government-wide effort, but gave him only until january to recommend new laws and executive orders. mr. obama pointed to assault rifles like the one used in the sandy hook attack to access to mental health care and to what he called a culture of that glorifies violence. major garrett is at the white house for us tonight. major? >> reporter: scott, gun control has never been an obama administration priority. it is now, and the clock is ticking on vice president joe biden's gun violence task force. mr. obama wants to announce new initiatives before his state of the union address in late january. >> there's no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. we're going to need to work on making access to mental health care at least as easy as access to a gun. we're going to need to look more closely at a culture that all too often glorifies guns and violence. and any actions we must take must begin inside the hom
. are these real? we find out the answers tonight. >>> good evening. we begin with the promise of action in the wake of tragedy. president obama saying today he will use all the powers of his office to help americans work together to end an epidemic of gun violence in this country. so, what will the president do first? abc's jake tapper was there and questioned the president today. jake? >> reporter: good evening, diane. after years of what critics charge has been not much discussion and even less action on the issue of addressing gun violence, today, president obama said that the tragedy at sandy hook changed everything, and now focusing on these issues will be at the forefront of his agenda. the president promised action. >> so, i will use all the powers of this office to help advance efforts aimed at preventing more tragedies like this. we won't prevent them all, but that can't be an excuse not to try. >> reporter: he pledged that his administration would look at the mental health, education, cultural and gun control aspects of this tragedy. and to head the effort, he appointed vice p
and rejecting real action against gun violence. at a defining a historic moment for our nation demanding courageous leadership, the nra has declined to step forward as a credible and constructive partner. the proposal for more armed guards in schools may be helpful in some instances, but it falls short of the strong, serious comprehensive action needed to stop the kind of horrific tragedy that occurred last week. many police that spoke to me on that day when we take a said that the killer was so heavily armed that they doubted they could have stopped him. the american people are demanding real change. the nra proposal fails to offer any real protection from violence. members in connecticut and around the country are writing and calling me to say that the nra does not speak for them. it was a call for action. the nra has failed to answer the call. we need to do something about these guns, about the assault weapons, the kind that was used in the new town tragedy. i am very proud to join and senator feinstein oppose the bill that will help put a stop to the proliferation of the assault weap
recommends at this time no disciplinary action. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live on capitol hill with more on this. catherine, in the last hour we have some brand new reaction to this report. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: that's right, jenna. first of all the report concludes there was no protest prior to the attack. that al qaeda is not dead. it has metastasized. that its followers have a new home in eastern libya. and that the benghazi on 9/11 was a significant defeat for the united states. it killed 4:00 americans including our ambassador. it also shuttered our diplomatic security presence in eastern lib. >> as well as a sizable cia operation. within the last hour a senior democrat at the closed classified briefing said there were systemic failures at seniors levels of the state department. >> i think the conclusion was very stark, very candid, very honest and told us the following. the mistakes were made, lives were lost and lessons need to be learned. first america can not retreat from a dangerous world. it is important for us to be there, to
of you who is listening or watching. without you, change would not have happened. your actions resulted in bradley being moved from quantico. make no mistake about that. with your actions, and the draconian actions he lived under for nine months came to an end. the magical watchers healed him and he was no longer required to live in the condition he was in. we all know that he cannot be here tonight. he knows tonight is happening. he wanted me to personally thank each and every one of you for taking the time to write to him. for signing petitions, for attending marches and rallies. thank you to writing to our government complaining about his conditions. thank you for donating to his legal defense. for volunteering at courage to resist and the bradley manning support network. he wanted me to thank you for carrying about him. the that so we have waged for the last two years cannot have been fought without your help. it has been a hard fight. we are at 140 exhibits. that amounts to over 20,000 pages of written attachments. i'm confident by the time this comes to a conclusion, this will be
by executive action or legislative action, we will convene such a commission. but, mr. president, i want to make very clear i am not offering this idea as a substitute for any action that we can take now, any action that the president can take now, for instance, with regard to the existing laws that are aimed at preventing people who shouldn't have guns from having them, keeping guns that really are military and are not part of hunting or sports shooting off the market. anything the president can do, anything congress can do. now, i would support a restoration of the assault ban today. these are weapons developed by our military originally, not by private industry for hunting or sport shooting purposes. they shouldn't be sold. we have got the background checks in the brady bill. if you attempt to buy a gun from a licensed federal firearms dealer, why shouldn't that exist for people who would buy a gun at a gun show, where incidentally terrorists we know have bought guns. so anything we can do quickly we ought to do. but i also think that a commission will make sure that we won't let the
. and lot to talk about because finally we see some action here in washington, d.c. i was there yesterday in the white house briefing room when president obama announces a task force on guns. he put vice president joe biden in charge. he gave them only one month to come up with a set of recommendations that he would then push through congress. and then he opened up the floor to questions and all the white house press corps wanted to talk about was the fiscal cliff. come on! it just shows how out of it they are. they can't get outside the beltway. they don't know what the american people really care about! all right. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here. but first, before we get to your calls, we'll take time out to get the latest, today current news update from lisa ferguson joining us from los angeles. good morning, lisa. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. that task force is wasting no time getting to work, as bill mentioned, that's the task force president obama commissioned in the wake of
: the school shootings that shook the nation sparked a new call to action at the white house today. the president vowed to have proposals ready for the new congress that convenes next month. somber scenes of mourning played out once again today in newtown, connecticut. while in washington, president obama walked into the white house briefing room named for james brady-- the press secretary critically wounded in the shooting of president reagan in 1981-- to talk abt g violence. >> the fact fact that this pros complex can no longer be an excuse for doing nothing. >> ifill: instead, in the wake of the massacre at sandy hook elementary school, mr. obama said, "this time, the words need to lead to action" on gun violence. >> the vast majority of responsible law abiding gun owners would be some of the first to say that we should be able to keep an irresponsible law breaking few from buying a weapon of war. i'm willing to bet that they don't think that using a gun and using common sense are incompatible ideas. there is a big chunk of space between what the 2nd amendment means and having
. talk about that a little bit. we're only six days away. are you surprised by the lack of action here in washington on the fiscal cliff considering the dire implications for a lot of budgets in cities around america? >> actually, look, i am surprised. been around the block just a couple times. i've seen different things in the past, but this is very serious business, and apparently some members of congress just don't get it. the -- you can call it whatever you want to call it, but certainly fiscal is in front of it and it's not good. taxes going up for all americans, not a good thing. significant, possibly devastating budget cuts coming down to certainly state and local governments, not a good thing. and so this seemingly bad game of chicken, you know, this is not some schoolyard game here. this is about people's lives, it's about their livelihoods, it's about the future of cities, it's about programs that need the dollars to provide services that the citizens want and expect is lack of doing your job. and so congress, it seems to me, should be flying, literally, back into session to
marines were killed in action. when he came home to america, he suffered from ptsd, as many of our warriors do. he spent time in a recovery facility in california to cope with the mental wounds of war. then in august, john decided to get some r&r. he wanted to go to costa rica with a fellow marine, ian, and they wanted to go on a surfing trip. according to ian, surfing gave john a peace of mind and helped really with his therapy. so the two packed up their car with their surf boards and began their journey from florida to costa rica. their trip took them through texas to the border, brownsville, texas. there they crossed the international border into matamoros, mexico, and that's as far as they got. john carried with him 100-year-old antique gun, a family air loom that belonged to his grandfather. when they arrived at the customs and border protection in texas, john did what he was supposed to do. he filled out all the necessary paperwork. he talked to u.s. customs and verified with them that the gun did not violate any mexican law. the two allegedly handed the mexican officials th
the secretary's swift action underscores how effective she is. >> secretary of state hillary clinton says she's recovering from a concussion. a deputy secretary testified in her place. >>> ed lee says he's planning to propose new legislation to get firearms off the streets. the move comes after two teenagers were gunned down in the bayview district last weekend. lorraine blanco is live with the details. >> reporter: mike, the mayor started his news conference, he said the city needs to make the streets of bayview -- the bayview district safer. he also said we need to provide more alternatives safer and he talked about the sandy hook tragedy saying we need to respond to the tragedy with tougher legislation nationwide. >> i joined over 750 other players across the country using social media and the technology that's available to us to signal a demand to congress that we need a plan and a plan and action to follow that, to ban these assault weapons. ♪ >> reporter: just before the mayor's news conference, members of the archdiocese of san francisco held a prayer vigil for the teen killed on sat
with 13 killed in action. when he returned home the corporal suffered from prost that plat particular stress disorder. he was treated for nine months. got out last may and simply wanted to take a vacation after his ordeal. there is absolutely no reason on earth for the mexican authorities to continue to hold. the reason they put him in jail in the first place was to extort money from his family that's what these people do south of the border. now, now, you would think that secretary of state hillary clinton and president obama would be directly involved in trying to secure the release of an american combat veteran. but they are not. the state department has visited hammar in prison but done little else. >> they have told us they can't do anything. >> bill: senator? the state -- is that right? the state department says they can't do anything. >> over and over. >> is there anything to ascertain is he innocent or not? again we don't know what happened. >> i have to take the question because i don't know the facts myself on that. so i have to take the question. >> let me reiterate secreta
, conservative groups have already condemned his harder bargain. heritage action called it the grand capitulation. republicans rm urged not to concede on the debt ceiling. mean whooit on the left, the huffington post, there's a headline condemning obama's raw deal saying the president's offer targets the middle class and the elderly. it's the cpi index they're taking issue with. the way you used to be able to get a deal done in washington is quote/unquote if both sides complained. that means there was equal pain. the question is if that still applies today. we'll see. there has to be some movement here. is the threshold going to get moved up? how will the rank and file respond to speaker bain they are morning? he's not presenting them any plan, but when the update is done. and what happens? where are senate republicans? some of them are in a sour place. when do they decide to launch their quote/unquote plan bs, which would extend tax rates up to 250,000 and punt everything else? we'll see. the next 24 hours are everything. they have to get a deal, a framework in place to avoid any sort of punt. >
read and then pushed aside. >> one of the reasons the president is asking for action without delay is because he knows change can be accomplished, and it's been done before. the assault weapons ban signed by president clinton reduced crime lower than it had been in a generation. it's been 18 years since the crime bill was signed, and eight years since it was allowed to expire. perhaps 24 is why president obama is turning to the bill's architect for guidance. >> i want to single out for special recognition the chairman of the senate judiciary committee who has fought tirelessly for this bill for six long years, senator joe biden. would you stand, senator joe biden. [ applause ] >> the choice of joe biden to lead the current task force on gun violence is no coincidence. the vice president fought against the odds to get democrats and republicans on board for the 1994 crime bill. biden is also a powerful symbol on this issue. his fight to curb gun violence helped him receive an "f" rating from the national rifle association, which i think really makes him qualified for job. the nra cal
are affected by this increase as possible, moving down that path, is the right course of action for us. >> good morning, first i'd like to say that i think all of our hearts and prayers are with the families in newtown, connecticut. as a father, i cannot even imagine the utter horror that those families are going through right now, grieving the loss of their children and their loved ones. as far as the fiscal cliff is concerned, as the speaker has said, we remain committed to trying to minimize the impact on hard-working families and small businesses. in this country, as far as tax increases are concerned. we look to find the answer to solve the problem on the spending issue, here in washington. the president is not yet there. he has not come to where he needs to be, in order for us to push through a bill that really does begin to address the problem. and as a speaker said, that's why we are now discussing an alternative plan, if the president and the white house, cannot come our way. thank you. >> and owe eric cantor and speaker boehner talking about what we had mentioned at the top. hour that
